Baltimore Sun - [Full Article]

Although Raven RB Bernard Pierce's workload is expected to increase this year after he averaged 6.75 carries per game as a rookie, the Ravens aren't planning to dramatically alter how they divide up the playing time.

RB Ray Rice remains entrenched as the featured back.

"I'm comfortable spelling myself at any time," Rice said. "I've been healthy and blessed, and I know I can still play at a high level. Last year was a very long year, and us being able to take the blows off of each other and being able to spell each other without having to worry about having to miss a beat, was really, really key for us. There is only one ball to go around, but at the same time, you were seeing what we were able to do with the run game."

Fantasy Impact: 

It seems to be a given that Pierce will get more looks this year and as a result, Rice falls in our RB rankings a bit. He comes in at 8th on our list with an ADP of the late first round. Pierce is shaping up to be a must-have handcuff for Rice owners.
